Great Sea Stories

by Joseph Lewis French, Great Sea Stories Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Great Sea Stories books, Men have written of the sea since 2500 BC, when an unknown author set down on papyrus his account of a struggle with a sea-serpent--the first sea-story on record. Modern sea-stories begin properly with the chronicles of the early navigators, and it is actually "Robinson Crusoe" that turns the great sea voyage into fiction, the foundation of the sea-tale as literary art. The literature of the sea grew slowly but surely, and it is hoped that this compilation offers indisputable evidence that the prose tradition is sustained, and that readers new to it will find the theme marvelously interesting.

by Joseph Cummins, Great Sea Stories Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Great Sea Stories books, Great Sea Stories recounts epic tales of the victims of shipwreck, mutiny and marooning, through history and around the globe, focusing on the age of sail and steam.

And of course, behind every tale of tragedy or triumph, lies the eternal mystery and majesty of the merciless, unpredictable ocean.

The Sinking Of The Titanic And Great Sea Disasters

by Logan Marshall, The Sinking Of The Titanic And Great Sea Disasters Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Sinking Of The Titanic And Great Sea Disasters books, The Sinking of the Titanic and Great Sea Disasters is an exciting collection of first-hand stories describing the catastrophe of Titanic’s maiden voyage as told by its survivors shortly after the ship sank. Originally written and published in 1912, Logan Marshall’s book was the very first attempt to solve the mystery of the accident and relieve the heartache it stirred internationally. Marshall narrates the personal stories of Titanic’s passengers before, during, and after the sinking of the ill-fated ship. This book takes us back in time and forces us to understand the trauma of our ancestors from a not-so-comfortable distance. Listen to the voices of real passengers tell their own touching stories of tragedy and see the photographs and sketches that accompany their stories. Also included are records of previous great disasters of the sea, descriptions of the development of safety and life-saving appliances, and a plain statement of causes of such catastrophes and how to avoid them. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade imprint, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in history--books about World War II, the Third Reich, Hitler and his henchmen, the JFK assassination, conspiracies, the American Civil War, the American Revolution, gladiators, Vikings, ancient Rome, medieval times, the old West, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
